LUBBOCK TX - The Texas Department of Transportation is looking for ways to expand freight and transportation opportunities. TxDot met with Mayor Dan Pope and key stakeholders Thursday.
"Business and investment often follows interstates, businesses need to be able to move their product and we need to connect I-27 to I-20," Pope said.
According to Pope, today was a step in the right direction.
"TxDot's here to get our input on freight planning, and that's important to our community."
TxDot Director of Freight and International Trade Caroline Mays believes the Fast Act will provide funding needed to expand economic opportunity in Texas.
